Life for a hard core rock and roll star is pretty hectic. Not only is most of your day filled with wild gigs, wild women and wild parties, but you also have to find time to perfect your surly, couldn’t care less attitude and practice swearing and punching photographers.
So you wouldn’t expect ex-Oasis front man and lead singer of the group Beady Eye, Liam Gallagher, the baddest and surliest of all lead singers ever to be in Oasis, to have the time to get all gooey and sentimental about a sausage dog.
But it seems that for all his rude finger gestures, Liam Gallagher is a soft, squidgy bunny at heart, as he has recently jumped up to defend the Dachshund.
Dachshund, sausage dogs, wiener dogs, hot dogs with legs; whatever you call them, the short legged, long bodied hound is in decline.
It seems that the German’s have got bored with the wiener dog and the latest rise in popularity of the tasty Asian hot dog has left the poor Dachshund in danger of extinction. But luckily for the breed, Liam and his wife Nicola Appleton are big fans.
“Extinction of sausage dogs?” cried Mr Gallagher upon hearing the news. “I will prevent that! When I’m back in England I am gonna buy 900 of them. I am gonna prevent them from downfall.”
Phew, thank god for that. Long live rock and roll!
